Blackberry and Raspberry Frozen Yogurt

It's getting hot and steamy here in Texas, and I decided to make some frozen yogurt.  My son makes homemade yogurt in the Instant Pot and we had a surplus, and I found a recipe for this beautiful treat. 

A dear friend gave me this gorgeous purple Oxalis plant.  Another dear friend gave me the metal heart shaped basket so very long ago. 

My friend, Pat and I, had lunch at a tearoom/antique mall awhile back, and we both fell in love with this blackberry teacup, which is a Royal Worchester, Lavinia pattern.  We each bought one to give to each other.

This Blackberry Sage Tea refreshes, whether it's served hot or cold.  I don't know if it provides wisdom, like the canister says, but it is tasty!

Cissy and Harper and Hayden came over to have a slumber party at my house!!  Of course our time was filled with JOY! 

Raspberry and Blackberry Yogurt

Raspberry and Blackberry Yogurt

This frozen yogurt is so pretty and perfect for a hot summer day. My son makes yogurt in the Instant Pot and we had a surplus, and this frozen yogurt came to the rescue!


  • 2 heaping cups raspberries and blackberries
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 4 teaspoons  fresh lemon juice
  • 1 and 1/2 cups ( 2% or whole milk yogurt, standard or Greek (not nonfat)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt


  1. In a saucepan, combine the berries, 1/2 cup  of the sugar, and lemon juice. Mash the berries with a potato masher until they're broken up and juicy. Cook the berries over medium-high heat until the juices are thickened and jammy, 7 to 10 minutes. Use a rubber spatula to press the berries through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl and transfer to the refrigerator to cool completely. Discard the skins and seeds.
  2. When cool, whisk in the remaining sugar, yogurt, heavy cream, vanilla extract, and salt until the sugar has dissolved completely. Chill until completely cold, at least 2 hours, in the refrigerator then churn in an ice cream machine according to manufacturer's instructions. Enjoy immediately as soft serve or transfer the frozen yogurt to a freezer-safe container, cover and freeze until firm.

  3. I use my Instant Pot for mostly soup, vegetables, and beans. I have not explored using its other functions such as making yogurt or as a slow cooker. The blackberry frozen yogurt looks delicious.

  4. What a great sleepover! Love it Kitty! WOW, the frozen dessert looks so yummy and what a treat on hot days. If that blackberry sage tea gives wisdom then I need a boat load of it! LOL! Hope your week is great for you dear Kitty. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  5. You know how to stay cool down there in Texas! In the Instant-Pot you say...hmmm...I have not graduated beyond boiled eggs. 😏 The girls look very happy and kept you on your toes I'm sure. Cissy must have been a big help.

  6. Your frozen yogurt looks creamy and deliciously full of flavour. A good way to keep cool. There's no worry about that here yet - it's chilly and rainy here this morning. How fun to have the girls over for a sleepover. Joy tripled!

  9. I don't think I've seen a teacup with a blackberry design before. How cute!

    I've been leaning into the fruity teas as the weather warms up. My A/C is broken so I'm beating the heat with ice cream and iced tea. The froyo looks great!

  10. The yogurt sounds good and I will have to give it a try. The girls are so cute. Enjoy them now, they grow up so fast.

  11. Oh the yogurt sounds perfect for our hot steamy weather too, also, very pretty. Lovely plant and basket. How about the teacup and buying the same one for the other. Similar taste of the beautiful teacup. What three precious girls, that must be wonderful to have them over for a slumber party. I'm sure that was a fun evening.....Have a wonderful week.

  12. Such a sweet post, Kitty! Sleepovers with darling grand-girls, pretty plantings, berry frozen yogurt in the charming, gifted tea-cup sounds wonderful to me! I definitely need to get an ice-cream maker :) Sending hugs xo Karen

  13. My brother makes cheeses and yogurt too - but he lives 3 hours north at the lake so everyone is so lucky and gets some now and then. I need to go visit once it is safe to venture out again. Not yet for me.

    Your recipe - and the pic of it - mmm mmmm goooood!

    Weird weather here - it's been in the 60s while you guys are having a heat wave. So strange. But I love it! I took a tiny wee nap in my new hammock today!

    Your teacup is so sweet - never saw that pattern before! How perfect for this lovely post!!! And of course those 3 sweet lovelies - that's the best part of the post. Golly they're growing fast, Kitty. ♥♥♥ Your little angels!!!!!
